Some questions on Lulu's EPUB-to-mobi conversion
I'm about to start converting a print book to e-book format. My last e-book project was published directly through Amazon but this time I'd like to use Lulu and its distribution system, so my book will hit Amazon and other e-book retailers.
The print book is non-fiction and has a number of diagrams in it. I notice that EPUB supports SVG images but I know the Kindle doesn't (I had to convert them all to GIFs in my previous e-book).
(1) can I safely put SVG images in my EPUB in the knowledge that they'll appear properly on people's Kindles, or will my EPUB have to use GIFs instead?
(2) will I be able to download the converted mobi from Lulu to check on my own Kindle devices before it goes on sale at Amazon?
